Love and Death - S2-E5

Visible crew/equipment: On the train at the start, after everyone has left except Victor and Margret, you can see a boom operator reflected in the door's glass panel. You can see him and it's even more noticeable when he lowers the boom for when Victor sits down.

Love and Death - S2-E5

Revealing mistake: When Victor gets the glass stuck to his head, it's obvious there is a clear piece of plastic to stop the beer spilling out. This is obvious as it never goes past a certain point, but stops instantly.

Love and Death - S2-E5

Revealing mistake: At the start, the background of the country going by when on the train is very obviously a fake. It sticks out like a sore thumb.

Trivia

The Christmas Special that aired in 1995, was initially intended as the series' finale, and would have seen Victor being killed while saving Margaret who was being attacked by a madman. The 1997 special was then intended to end the series with Margaret dying from a heart attack brought on from the strain of Victor's misadventures, but on both occasions the production crew got cold feet. It wasn't until the final series in 2000 that the team, in David Renwick's words, "plucked up the courage to kill Victor."
